FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots are mostly healthy heading out of the bye week.
Steve Gregory (thumb) was the lone players missing from Thursday’s practice. Gregory broke his thumb against the Steelers.
Brandon Bolden, who has been dealing with a knee injury, was on a stationary bike while the rest of the players were jogging. Shane Vereen (wrist) and Aqib Talib (hip) were running with the team.
Armond Armstead and Mark Harrison must start practicing this week to come off the non-football injury list. Neither were at practice on Thursday, though Armstead was spotted walking toward the stadium from the parking lot while the rest of the team was practicing.
It’s too early to tell if Gregory will be able to play this week against the Panthers. If he can’t suit up, rookie Duron Harmon would likely take his place.
